Class Struggle and Resistance in Africa


Manufacturer: Haymarket Books

Product Information

The African continent has been central to the project of capitalist globalization, and the dominance of Western economic and geopolitical interests continues to profoundly shape Africa's internal dynamics in the postcolonial period.

This collection of essays and interviews from leading activists and socialists offers critical insights into class struggle and social empowerment across the continent. Assessing contemporary flashpoints of conflict and struggle, experts examine the renewal of Islamic fundamentalism in Egypt; advance a critical appraisal of South Africa's post-Apartheid government; document the deepening crisis in Zimbabwe; and chart trade union resistance in Nigeria and Zambia. These accounts also offer crucial contributions to discussions over neoliberal governance, debt relief, social agency among the urban poor, trade unionism, and strike action.

With contributions from Leo Zeilig, David Seddon, Anne Alexander, Dave Renton, Ahmad Hussein, Jussi Vinnikka, Femi Aborisade, Miles Larmer, Austin Muneku, Peter Dwyer, Trevor Ngwane, Munyaradzi Gwisai, Tafadzwa Choto, and Azwell Banda.

Published by Haymarket Books, 2009 (reprint of 2002 New Clarion Press edition).
